About the AIGA Minnesota board

Governance of a membership organization requires a solid commitment from dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers with a variety of talents and attributes. For AIGA Minnesota, the board of directors is one of its distinct assets that serves and protects the brand and legacy of the organization. The board ideally represents a cross-section of thought leadership across the design profession, with each member taking charge of an area specifically suited to his or her talents and interests in order to benefit the full membership.

About board elections

Several times each year, AIGA Minnesota welcomes new members to serve on its board of directors and lead efforts to shape the direction of the organization. For the term beginning January 1, 2017, a nominating committee recommended a slate of nominees for consideration of open officer- and director‑level positions on the board. The slate was approved for ratification by a vote of the organization’s Supporting, Sustaining, Design Leader, and Trustee‑level members. Non‑voting associate directors are appointed by a majority vote of the board.
